Here's one that's starting to percolate in Ashland: one of the reason that power and water rates are going up (the city owns these utilities itself) is that people heeded the call to conserve and use less.
That just doesn't sit well with some folks.
I don't think you have to spend too much time reflecting on this before it's clear that there's no trickery or bad faith a work here. This week's column tries to offer perspective before the serious shouting begins.

Ashland adds a tax to the utilities. It is easier than getting a millage passed. Sneaky!

McDonald's Is Closing More Restaurants Than It Opens | The Food Revolution Network

Finally, our efforts to avoid processed foods and Frankenfoods are paying off. For the first time in decades, McDonald’s is struggling and has to close more restaurants than it opens after worldwide drops in sales. According to an Associated Press review of McDonald’s regulatory filings, this hasn’t happened since 1970. Earlier this year the fast food giant announced the closing of 350 underperforming locations, but recently admitted it had to close an additional 350 restaurants in the U.S., Japan, and China. The closings include both franchises and company-owned locations.
